Most historic buildings were not originally designed to accommodate people with disabilities. Providing access (interior and exterior) for persons with disabilities in ways that preserve the character of the historic property is a challenge that requires creativity and collaboration.

As we seek to make improvements to the built environment, we are focusing our attention on providing digital and print images for physically inaccessible spaces and increasing outdoor interpretive programming. Please contact us for more details.

Our site currently consists of:

  • Designated accessible parking spaces.
  • An accessible ramp is available at the back of the house.
  • The main floor of this historic house allows for access using a mobility device.
  • The basement, upper floor and attic are only accessible via wooden staircases but pictures of these rooms are available and staff are on hand to share stories and answer questions.
  • Seating is available both inside and on the property.
  • Gender-neutral washroom on-site. 
  • The Prescott House Museum is proud to be an Aira Access Partner.

We will update this page as we make improvements.
